JOURNEY 2 FREEDOM

OUR PURPOSE – WHY WE EXIST

Freeing men to Live Real through connections with God, others and themselves

OUR VISION

Seeing thousands of men set free to discover their true life purpose through Getaway Weekends, authentic friendships and faith communities to courageously live it out in service to God, family, and neighbors.

OUR FOCUS

Men who are:

  • Isolated and “stuck” in a busy, crowded world, even in church
  • Turned off by certain organized religions of rules, hypocrisy and distorted images of God
  • Searching for significance in something more than Possessions, Performance and and Power

OUR STRATEGY – THE CHURCH PARTNERSHIP INITIATIVE – ( CPI )

Serving Pastors, Ministry Leaders and their men.

“GETAWAY WEEKENDS”

A Catalyst for Men of Faith

Creating GETAWAYS removed from the city, the distractions and the noise.

To experience:

  • a slower pace, rest, and great food
  • deeper connections with Christ
  • new awareness into their souls
  • more authentic friendships and camaraderie with other men.

The CPI Getaway Weekend can be customized to help start or enrich:

  • Small groups for Men’s discipleship /or a support network
  • Men of Service- seeing men step out of passivity and into service for their family and community. (Church being one of many ways to serve)

We lead men toward:

  • Discovering the power and purpose of his story in God’s unfolding plan
  • Developing the whole person: Body – Mind – Soul
  • Resilience and the courage to start again after failures
  • Greater awareness of…
    • how we hide
    • fears that drive us
    • I AM NOT ALONE! & ME TOO!
